Recent financial crises and instances of corporate malpractice have prompted many questions about how companies are run - and whether this corresponds with how they should be run.

Corporate Governance: Theory and Practice systematically explores the factors that shape corporate governance, and discusses both those governance practices implemented by companies and those imposed by regulators. It also tries to determine how good corporate governance can help companies to create value for their shareholders.

Case studies of individual companies from Europe, Asia, North and South American are discussed in each chapter to illustrate that some practices are global, whereas others are only appropriate in certain settings.

Ideal for students of business, management, law, finance and accounting, it is packed with empirical evidence, academic literature and offers considerable student and lecturer support. A website accompanies the book www.palgrave.com/finance/padgett
